Building Wrenton - Page 32
The roads have now got some extra details in the form of drain and manhole covers and some patches of repairs. This view from the north end of the layout shows some of them. They should probably be of tone and colour more like the road itself - but then they'd hardly be visible!
The covers are based on photos of the real things. This close up (right) shows one of the drains in the station approach road which is seen in the photo above.

While preparing the transfers I thought I'd make one to decorate one of the cottages thus making it a Tea Room.
